losing it.

posted in: personal | 1

Sometime late last year, I lost it. I’m not sure when it happened or what caused it specifically but all creative energy just leaked right out of me. Cooking became a chore. Or simply something I wasn’t inspired by nor could afford to be playful with. My brain couldn’t grasp excess words beyond “Thank you” to the Thai food delivery guys.

Spring is usually a time of renewal for me in the personal and culinary senses. It hasn’t quite been that way this year either but I’m trying. My friend recommended a writing accountability group to help encourage one another to make goals each week and keep them. So I joined – because I miss this place. With time, some new recipes will join these words. Consider this a check-in.

And a survey:
So what inspires you currently?
What are you cooking these days?
How do you get back on the horse?

  1. So happy you’ve checked in and look forward to seeing some deliciousness soon. I can completely relate to feeling uninspired and like cooking can become a chore. Burnout. It’s the worst! A break sounds like it was much needed.
